Sametime status not updating

WAAS Express uses the capabilities of IOS software and provides a small-footprint, cost-effective solution that transparently integrates into the Integrated Services Routers (ISRs) Generation 2 (G2).WAAS Express extends the WAN optimization solution to the entire ISR G2.IBM documentation covers the variables and attribute for auto-status change preferences but that is all behind the scenes.The location os such preferences are also notes in the IBM Sametime wiki, but again no easy way to manage and manipulate.Many customers are upgrading their pre 8.5 Sametime environments to 8.5.x Versions and therefore have to change the directory lookups to LDAP.(If you already used LDAP lookups just ignore this post.) Unfortunately online awareness for hierarchical names will not work anymore in the Lotus Notes Client (still works for email addresses): field will be your hierarchical name and you have to add it to the LDAP lookup.

When you restart Notes and hover over a Sametime contact the client will refetch the business card data. If set to zero ('0'), the client refreshes data at every restart. What is worse is that if you take a sampling of five users, three out of the five will have completely different information show up in the business card for a specified user.You can set a preference to have Sametime automatically change your status to In a Meeting when you have a meeting scheduled in your calendar. In Notes, click File Preferences and then click the plus sign ( ) next to Sametime. Click the plus sign next to Auto-status Changes, and then click Calendar Service. Select whether and how often to check your calendar. Choose whether you would like Notes to prompt you before changing your Sametime status, or if you would like it to automatically change. For the Lotus Notes calendar, enter your Lotus Notes password. Do you have issues with people appearing online when they are away?Do you wish you could control setting and preferences in IBM Sametime like this?
